What does this mysterious grappler want with MLW and Zeda Zhang? We may find out more November 9 when MLW returns to Orlando.

I’m thrilled about this signing. Anthony will be our first developmental project as a company. For those who followed his boxing career and saw his Olympic acumen, you’ll be happy to see he’s now applying that passion and work-ethic to pro-wrestling training. Welcome Anthony! https://t.co/QLARQOTbof

Cody made an appearance at Southside 9th Anniversary event in the UK. Fans in attendance are reporting Rhodes announced AEW has signed former English boxing Olympian, Anthony Ogogo, 30. He would later come out in the show and knock out MJF.
Ogogo won a bronze medal (Middleweight division) at the 2012 London Olympics. He then retired from boxing in 2016 with a professional record of 11-1 after he fractured his eye socket in 2 places in his first pro defeat and underwent 7 operations.
Ogogo already made his wrestling debut in his hometown back in February for World Association of Wrestling (WAW). In April, Rhodes talked a bit about recruiting Ogogo in a Road to Double or Nothing – Episode 12, and we saw more of the boxer’s life story.
This Wednesday’s episode of AEW Dynamite is beginning to take shape as the Fite TV preview has revealed some matches and segments set for the show. Below are the other scheduled matches to take place on Wednesday from Charleston, West Virginia.
